How Students with Visual Impairments Can Learn Components of the Expanded Core Curriculum through Physical Education
Lieberman, Lauren J.; Haegele, Justin A.; Columna, Luis; Conroy, Paula
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v108 n3 p239-248 May-Jun 2014
Research indicates that children with visual impairments demonstrate delays in fundamental motor skills, including locomotor, object control, and balance skills (Haibach, Lieberman, & Pritchett, 2011; Houwen, Hartman, & Visscher, 2010; Wagner, Haibach, & Lieberman, 2013). All of these skills are prerequisites to living an independent and successful life. This article provides suggestions to administrators, teachers of students with visual impairments, orientation and mobility (O&M) instructors, and physical education teachers on how to work together to teach the expanded core curriculum (ECC) in all areas of their school. The article provides strategies that foster collaboration among those professionals when teaching the ECC curriculum.
